Hess Stables is a family owned farm in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of New York State.  We pride ourselves on being a friendly, people oriented farm.  We have an excellent lesson program in several disciplines, as well as on-farm lease opportunities.  Hess Stables specializes in the unique challenges that come with riding and training the off-track thoroughbred.
